I missed my first chance to vote because I had just gone off to collge, far out of state, and never got around to getting an absentee ballot. I was 18, and that was 1980. I haven't missed an election since. I've been reading (in LJ and on mailing lists) about folks' memories of the Reagan years, their opinions of him as a president. I didn't vote for him, wouldn't have even if I had gotten that ballot, but I never had a particular dislike of the man--he seemed nice enough, although since I've always been pretty liberal I didn't agree with much of his platform. (And if I had disliked him, I couldn't have wished anything worse for him than what did inevitably happen to him.) So, no great thoughts from here (although I may steer clear of the History Channel and CNN for a while! :)).

Dan is out doing yardwork, potting hops and grapes and so forth. I'm about to get to work clearing some stuff out of the way upstairs so that we can try to get that mattress out later. We'll be sleeping on the couches for a couple of days, but it's going to be quite a job getting things ready for the new mattres that's coming next week. I'm still not sure how we're going to get it in.
